Recent News and Notes

I research all Goldens, and similar names,  whose family lines are believed to have settled in North America before 1800. Am in search of my Goldens — but find it quicker to collect them all and then to sort them out. As of mid-2018, I also research Gouldman and Keeling families that originated in Virginia prior to 1800.

Our Goulden/Golden line appears to have descended from the Keeling line that settled in Virginia, closely related to George Keeling (c1650 VA – 1720 NC) and Edward Keeling (c1640 EN/VA – 1697 VA). Our Gouldens may also have been Gouldmans briefly between 1660-1710/20 when the Goulden name was first recorded in the Rappahanock, Virginia area. My belief is that the Gouldmans also descend from Keelings.

So while I may not be related to your Goldens or Gouldings or Gouldens or …. I do want to know about them, and may be able to help find new information about them.

Best regards,
